There are cases that have documented the remarkable connection
Do birthmarks have something to do with one’s past life? Apparently, some do have a connection, but perhaps not all.
Birthmarks are marks or blemishes found on the skin of a person at birth.
The first Western scientist I know who had conducted serious research on reincarnation and birthmarks was the late Dr. Ian Stevenson, head of the Psychiatry Department at the University of Virginia, USA.
He investigated around 3,000 cases of spontaneous past life recall by children ages 3-13. He found remarkable evidence of past life memories and wrote around 20 of them in his pioneering book “Twenty Cases Suggestive of Reincarnation,” published by the University Press of Virginia in 1974.
The following are some of the remarkable connections between birthmarks and past lives from 210 individuals investigated and reported by Dr. Stevenson:
1. A boy named Maha Ram in India could remember being killed in a previous life with a shotgun fired at close range. He remembered enough details of his past life for Stevenson to find an autopsy report of the man supposedly reincarnated as Ram. The birthmarks on Ram’s chest corresponded to the bullet wounds.
2. A 12-year-old boy in the Middle East born with a ring-like mark or scar around his neck remembered two uncles who beheaded him in order to get his inheritance.
3. Karen Kubicko posted photos of herself in high school with a birthmark on her neck and a photo of herself later in life without the birthmark. She said she remembered that in a previous life she was a woman named Helen who was hit by a stray bullet in the neck and died in 1927. The mark was where the bullet had hit her in her vision. After she remembered this, the mark gradually disappeared.
Some years back I had a seminar participant who was a graduate student of genetic engineering from UP who had a big hematoma birthmark on her lower back and a big mole on the right side of her stomach. During the past life regression in my SKR class, she saw herself as a male rebel leader rousing people to rise in arms against the government in 17th-century Italy.
A soldier caught her and she was whacked with a wooden bat on her back. Another soldier shot her on the right side of her stomach.
In yet another interesting case studied by Dr. Jim Tucker, who continued the works of Dr. Stevenson, a birthmark was traced to a past life.
“An old woman died in Thailand with a wish to reincarnate as a boy. Her daughter dipped a finger in white paste and marked the back of the woman’s neck with the paste. Not long after the woman’s death, her daughter gave birth to a son with a white mark on the back of his neck that looked like the white paste left on the woman’s nape.”
The above stories and several others can be read in the website www.spiritsciencemetaphysics.com. I am indebted to reader Nina Patena for informing me about this website.
When Dr. Stevenson was asked how come the birthmarks still appeared on the skin of a reincarnated person when it was a new body he is now occupying, he replied that it must be because the memory of the previous life may still be strongly embedded in his mind. Or maybe it is necessary as a reminder of the person’s previous life.
